Children’s Theatre is a course designed to introduce the beginning, intermediate, and advanced student to the art and craft of Children’s Theatre. This is done through the production of a musical children’s show. Each production will be cast from the class members only, and everyone will get a role. Most rehearsals and production work will occur during class time, with costume fittings outside of class, and dress rehearsals and performances taking place during evenings and weekends at the end of each semester. Some students will perform 20-minute previews of our show at area Elementary Schools. This is a performance class, and therefore you will perform! You will act, sing and dance. You will spend lots of time on stage, sometimes alone, usually in pairs and/or groups; if this makes you nervous, we’ll help you learn how to overcome it. The entire year is geared towards our March performance. This is not negotiable. The students in this course will help fund raise for the production. Our budget for this show is approximately $10,000.
